About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Den, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Welcome to Homestead Farm South. We are located in the Blue Ridge Mountain community of Pisgah Forest, only four miles from the entrance to the Pisgah National Forest and just ten minutes from the town of Brevard and the Brevard Music Center. Nearby sites include Sliding Rock, Looking Glass Falls, and the Cradle of Forestry. Also nearby is the Dupont State Forest, including Hooker, High, and Triple Falls. Other area sites include Biltmore Estate, the Blue Ridge Parkway, Carl Sandburg's historic home, and Flat Rock Playhouse.

If you are tired of tiny hotel rooms with heat and air that are impossible to set, noisy halls, the trip to the Laundromat when you'd rather be sight-seeing, having to eat every meal out, not having a place to store the fish you just caught, and all the other things you dread about a vacation, then this is the place for you. Leave home without leaving the comforts of home!

We offer a one bedroom, air conditioned suite in an upstairs apartment with a private entrance that accommodates up to four people. Completed in 2000, the apartment has a fully-equipped kitchen, bathroom with bathtub, washer and dryer, living room with a queen-size sleeper sofa, separate bedroom with a king-size bed and plenty of closet space, and a sundeck. The apartment is on a 22-acre farm with magnificent views that borders the French Broad River. Our farm animals include horses, goats, sheep, chickens, and turkeys, as well as Great Pyrenees dogs.

About Ken & Kim Burton

Homestead Farm South is named after Ken's ancestral home in Connecticut, Homestead Farm Dairy. When Ken and Kim moved to the mountains of North Carolina, they decided they would do something unconventional for a couple that had lived in the suburbs; they bought farm land and built Homestead Farm South. Ken wanted bison, Kim wanted goats and sheep, so they have goats and sheep, as well as a horse, chickens, turkeys, a donkey, and guardian dogs.

Ken & Kim Burton purchased this apartment in 2000

Why Ken & Kim Burton chose Pisgah Forest

Ken and Kim spent many months looking at properties, and they fell in love with the Little River valley area. Ken found this property when a colleague at work told him friends of his had property for sale, and when his coworker took him to show him the property, it was exactly where he and Kim had said they wanted to live.

What makes this apartment unique

Kim found the house plan and they made some changes to make it, including adding the apartment over the garage. Originally intended for visiting family and friends, or for a future Brevard College student willing to live there in exchange for helping out, they decided to try using it as a vacation rental at the encouragement of their contractor and with the assistance of a nearby B&B. It was a decision they have not regretted because they have had many wonderful people stay there through the years

Owner's Response: Debbie, We're glad you enjoyed your visit and the opportunity to enjoy the farm, especially the Great Pyrs! They are magnificent animals whom are very affectionate, perform their jobs with natural instinct guarding and protecting the other animals on the farm. It's exciting when we hear from our guests how much they enjoy our area and the natural resources that Transylvania County has to offer. We certainly are "The Gateway to Outdoor Recreation"! We hope to have you stay with us again! Thank you, Ken and Kim

Great for the country life

  • 4 of 5

The property met our expectations. We had a very good time exploring the area. The unit was clean, comfortable and well equipped. In our opinion it represented good value for the money. It is located on a hobby farm which added a nice touch. The hosts are welcoming and helpful. Directions would be best if they provided the street address. We would stay again if we return to the area.

Apartment is nice

  • 3 of 5

Overall the property is nice. However we weren't able to sleep well. I'd suggest bringing ear plugs as there was a dog that barked most of the nights we were there.

Ken was friendly and it is private.

Owner's Response: Beth, thank you for sharing your feedback. We work very hard to provide a clean, enjoyable and hospitable place to stay for our guests on the farm. We live in a country setting, and especially this time of year, we do have numerous coyote and deer in our area, and dogs respond to them. We hope you will consider staying with us again. It was a pleasure to meet you, we hope you enjoyed your time spent visiting your family. Ken and Kim
